Transformers War of Cybertron Trilogy - EARTHRISE STARSCREAM ( Voyager Class )

Gotten from Taobao... A nice voyager class Starscream figure that is "inspired" / "pays homage to" the Classics HenkeiX2 Universe Generations Starscream which is deluxe class... hmmm... how come it reminds me of the 3rd party KO which oversizes and improves the Hasbro TFs... so Hasbro KO itself??? Anyway, it does not matter, as long as ultimately the TF is a good TF... and this Starscream is a very good TF, for me, that is...

Transformers Siege - Battle Masters : Firedrive ( with Handle Modifications )

Gotten this at TRU for SGD9.99 .... This targetmaster looks more natural than some of the other targetmasters in the Siege line, at least it does not have a handle sticking out of the chest... Though this is named Firedrive, I believe he may be linked back to Hot Rod's targetmaster partner Firebolt ... This targetmaster fits into the fist of my KO MP Hot Rod nicely, but the port to hold it in car mode is shaped weirdly in a rectangular shape. I have to file (and test, and repeat) the sides of the handle to fit Firedrive in. Quite a easy mod, but do try to file/sand a bit by a time...

MFT (?) Vecma Studio VS-03 VS03 Head Warrior Obstinate a.k.a. G1 Hardhead

Is it Mech Fans Toys ? Not sure, but it is a heavily retooled/modification/whatever of the Unique Toys Schunck ... or Betta ... not sure which is which... anyway, this came with 2 headmasters that allows you to choose a more cartoon-accurate or toy-accurate look for the figure. Plastic used is not the brittle-rigid type but has a little rubbery feel which I think is good for especially ball-joints. Joints' tightness are just nice. I bought without the small armor robot. Very nice figure.

Master of Strategy... Will be displaying him in my office cubicle... Did some minor painting on this figure, slightly more than the previous one (Guan Yu version)... Wishing all a Happy New Year!

Transformers - War for Cybertron Trilogy : Siege ( Leader Class ) Astrotrain

Bought it at Taobao, total cost is SGD61.58... Considered quite a cheap price compared to the official retail price here... But really, this is just a Voyager class toy, with some additional plastic pieces which I don't really think is necessary... Heard that Earthrise will re-release this in a kibble-less version, not sure if it is true.... But the main figure is a good toy, in my opinion... Figure feels heavy, not sure why... Joints are relatively tight enough... Nice...

Transformers G1 Bumblebee ( Cartoon Face Version )

Bought this at the Santa's Warehouse Sale a few days ago, costs SGD10... This sale at Bishan CC has ended but there will be another run at Jurong Logistics Hub, from 19 to 22 Dec, timing please ask Google... Bought this because my other G1 Bumblebee has a masked face, while the KO Kabaya one has a Cliffjumper face... Need to be careful when pulling out the feet for transformation (have to press the foot with thumb and finger, then pull out the foot). Looks good with the other Bumblebees, especially the NA Toys design.
